    "The United States understands that after Israel withdraws from Gaza and/or parts of the West Bank, and pending agreements on other arrangements, existing arrangements regarding control of airspace, territorial waters, and land passages of the West Bank and Gaza will continue." - Letter of G.W. Bush to A. Sharon (April 14, 2004) haaretz.com/news/ariel-sharon-and-george-w-bush-s-letters-in-full-1.277418 Israel has never relinquished its occupation of Gaza's territorial waters, which therefore is under occupation according to everybody. As far as Gaza's soil, Israel considers it not to be occupied since Sharon's evacuation (2005), while the rest of the world, including the UN and Egypt, and almost all legal experts still consider Gaza as occupied by Israel. To me it seems sensible, since Israel continues to move in and out of Gaza at will and to declare parts of it a no-man land. But the Israeli Supreme Court did not yet rule on this question, and therefore the Israeli government and IDF can pretend to have Gaza the way they want it.
